MAKING A

DIFFERENCE www.monaropost.com.au

Local paper Established in 2006

Monaro Community Access Service (MCAS) and Mission Australia are raising awareness for homelessness in Cooma this week. A soup kitchen was set up in Centennial Park on Tuesday and some year 11 Monaro High School students will be camping out on Sharp Street between 4pm and 5pm on Thursday and Friday to try to draw attention to the issue. “I am interested to see if people will actually stop and take notice of us lying here on the street,” said Joel Wybrew, one of the students participating in the initiative. Being Homelessness Prevention Week, MCAS hopes to educate the community about the seriousness of this problem right across Australia, and to provide information on who to turn to. According to Homelessness Australia, one in 200 people is homeless on any given night, with the majority being under the age of 34.

New addition to Avenue of Flags Funding for BP Park Mr Sibusiso Ndebele, the South African High Commissioner, was in town on Friday to discuss the plan to place a new South African flag along the Avenue of Flags. The Avenue of Flags was established in 1959 in commemoration of the many nationalities of those who contributed to the building of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme. The erection of the new flagpole will be in recognition of Australia’s role in ending the South African apartheid and the continuing strong relationship that is shared between our countries. South Africa will be the only country with two flags included in the Avenue. The new flag will be the modern South African national flag whilst the existing one is a historical flag from the apartheid period. The South African High Commission will determine a significant day for the flag raising ceremony within the next 12 months.

Snowy River Shire Council is delighted to announce that a grant of $40 000 was recently secured under the NSW Sport & Recreation Disability Grants program. The grant will form part of the funding required to deliver a new inclusive playground in Banjo Paterson Park. Council in partnership with Touched by Olivia Foundation and the community have been working toward this exciting project for the local community and visitors to Jindabyne. The NSW Sport & Recreation Disability Grants program provides financial support to improve opportunities for people with disability

TSM to expand its scope A new Tourism Snowy Mountains subcommittee, known as TSM Destination 2020 has been established with key stakeholders to review product gaps in the Snowy Mountains region and to develop ideas and strategies to improve product offerings. The TSM Destination 2020 subcommittee consists of representatives from the business community, TSM Board members and a council representative located in the Snowy River and Cooma-Monaro Shires. However, once underway, it is proposed that the template initiated will form the basis for a new subcommittee to address similar opportunities in the Tumut and Tumbarumba Shires, to combine and form a coordinated whole of region approach. The TSM Executive Officer, Neil Thew will be sitting on both these subcommittees. The sub-committee comprises Bruce Marshall – Sub-committee Chair: TSM Board member;

to participate in sport, recreational activities and build their skills, knowledge and confidence. The inclusive playground means that children of all abilities will have a place to learn, play and grow. This new grant, coupled with the $10,000 previously committed by Snowy River Shire Council, $40,000 from John Barilaro through the Community Building Partnerships Program and $30,000 in community fundraising, ensures we are well placed to deliver a playground for all abilities. “This Government recognises and acknowledges the important work that Councils and community groups perform within our community,� said Mr Barilaro.

The premise behind the sub-committee, is to broaden TSM’s scope beyond being primarily a marketing body and to delve deeper into product development and other key initiatives that will boost long term and sustainable tourism in the region. “The TSM Destination 2020 Sub-Committee is a great initiative that consists of very passionate people that want to improve the visitor economy in the Snowy Mountains

region,’’ Mr Thew said. ‘’I personally really admire that this group, chaired by local businessman and TSM Director Bruce Marshall, are volunteering their time to make serious efforts to improve tourism in our region�. As developments evolve, TSM will keep the region informed of progress through regular communications.

Proposal for firearms range at Numbla Vale

Last Tuesday some weapons noise testing took place in the country neighbouring Christie and Jack Glasson’s property ‘Jimenbeun’ south of Dalgety. Preparations are currently underway for the development application (DA) of this land to be used as a weapons testing and training facility by a company called W&E Platt Mounts and Ordnance. W&E Platt Mounts is a Sydney-based company that designs and manufactures weapon mounts and equipment for armoured vehicles. Their main clientele being police and defence forces, they largely deal in exports and have 19 customers around the world. Despite having all the correct documentation and permission for the noise testing last week, Mrs Glasson says that none of the surrounding landowners were notified. “We were just lucky we didn’t have any ewes lambing in the paddock next door,” she says. The Snowy River Shire Council approved a similar DA from W&E Platt Mounts back in 2012. However this was later revoked after action was taken by the Glassons on the basis of classification. When noise testing took place back in 2012, the Glassons say they had cattle abandon their calves and damage fences. “I have major concerns about security and about the welfare of our animals,” Mrs Glasson said. “This sort of thing should be taking place in the middle of a desert, not in an agricultural area.” Director of W&E Platt Mounts, Allan Platt, said they have already gained approval from the majority of their neighbours in the Dalgety Numbla Vale area and that noise testing has so far shown that the impact on residents will be minimal. One of the changes from the 2012 DA is the inclusion of sound barriers, although Mr Platt says that these are unnecessary considering the preliminary results of the noise tests. “W&E understand the concerns of the small number of locals that are concerned with what they perceive as potential impacts, and we are very interested in hearing their concerns in a civilised,

scientific and constructive manner,” Mr Platt said, “We are also open to financial compensation in order to allay fears regarding stock.” “One thing I want to point out strongly is that at no time access to their properties will be impeded by any of our activities. All of our activities have been planned for against the most stringent Work Health and Safety criteria.” According to Mr Platt, the planned firearms range is something the Dalgety Numbla Vale community should be embracing, as it will provide a muchneeded boost for the local economy. “Training groups of 15 to 20 people would be consistently coming to the area, eating at the Dalgety pub, staying at the Dalgety caravan park and spending time and money in other areas such as Berridale,” he said, “What we are doing is helping develop industry in the Dalgety Numbla Vale area.” “For example, in conducting a recent driving trial, we would have spent about $6000 in Berridale and Dalgety on food and accommodation alone.” Mr Platt also said that with a limited number of training facilities such as the proposed Numbla Vale facility in Australia, the government is forced to send troops overseas at great expense. By providing an accessible training resource here in NSW, Mr Platt said it would reduce the cost to government and also provide employment opportunities in the area. “The topography of the area is also what makes this location best suited for a training facility,” Mr Platt said. “You could put a facility like this in somewhere like Burke, but these people need to be trained in conditions of strong winds, cold weather, isolation and difficult terrain.” With regulatory frameworks in place to safeguard the community, Mr Platt says that the NSW Firearms Registry have the ultimate say when it comes to their operations. Pending the finalisation of the noise test calibration report in three to four weeks time, it is unclear at this stage as to when the DA for the firearms range will be submitted to Council.

On Wednesday July 22, the Cooma Chamber of Commerce held a networking night for members. The event was well attended and was a great opportunity to discuss business matters and see what the Cooma Chamber of Commerce is up to. President of the Cooma Chamber of Commerce Kathy Kelly, said “It was a great night and we received positive feedback from members on the success of the So Much to Love and Love to Shop campaigns as well as the success stories for the Renew Cooma Project. Both projects have been in partnership with the Cooma Monaro Shire Council and could not have happened without them.” Kathy addressed the crowd of over 20 people about the role the chamber was playing in driving

the economic development of Cooma and also reminding members that the committee is dedicated to the cause but are all volunteers juggling their small business/careers and Chamber commitments. Recent feedback gained from members advised that networking functions were important but needed to be informal and held after hours. “We listened to the feedback and were really pleased to have in excess of 20 members attend as well as receiving another 10 official apologies” said Kathy. Now is the time to join the Cooma Chamber of Commerce. To join email coomachamber@gmail. com or contact Kathy Kelly on 0428 883 044.

NAIDOC exhibition opens at Raglan Gallery

Jandemarra Wall gave a traditional didgeridoo performance to open the NAIDOC exhibition.

Uncle Ossie Cruse next to his portrait by Nana Ohnesorge.

The annual NAIDOC exhibition opened at the Raglan Gallery, Cooma, last Sunday. This year’s NAIDOC exhibition includes five portraits of local Ngarigo and Walgalu elders, painted by award winning artist Nana Ohnesorge. The works celebrate the artist’s deepening engagement with Aboriginal people, and highlight the beauty, dignity and strength of the First Australians and their culture. Ms Ohnesorge teaches at the National Art School in Sydney. Her work has been selected four times for the Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW and she has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions in NSW and interstate. Another special feature of this year’s exhibition is the travelling cultural exhibition Dabee-Mudgee Stories. The exhibition consists of 10 panels of photographs and interpretative material and six objects in cases with provenance relating to known individuals from the first period of contact.

The exhibition is based largely on biographies of known ancestors of present day members of the Aboriginal community from the Kandos-Mudgee area, who are identified as the Dabee and Mudgee people, clans of the Wiradjuri nation. However it exemplifies the universal and often untold story of the tumultuous changes brought about by white settlement. The exhibition is managed by the North East Wiradjuri Company Ltd. In conjunction with the Kandos Historical Society. Pictured left: Jandemarra Wall performed a traditional smoking ceremony for the opening of the NAIDOC exhibition at the Raglan Gallery on Sunday.

It was with some sadness that I represented Council at the funeral for Councillor Fergus Thomson, OAM last week. Fergus was very well known throughout not only the Eurobodalla community but the wider South East Region of NSW and within Local Government for his long term commitment to public service. Fergus was elected to Eurobodalla Shire Council in April 2004 and became Eurobodalla’s first popularly elected Mayor and served until September 2012. Fergus was also the driving force behind the establishment of the South East Regional Organisation of Councils (SEROC), and served as its first chairman. Fergus was very passionate about Eurobodalla and was recognised for his service to community and local government by receiving an Order of Australia Medal in January of this year. This was clearly evident at the funeral as it was largely attended and there were many Councils and Local Government representatives who paid their respects on the day. Our thoughts are with Fergus’s family and friends during this difficult time and to Councilors and staff at Eurobodalla Shire Council. Fergus leaves a fine legacy of service to the Eurobodalla community and Local Government. Council at its meeting last Tuesday, observed a minutes silence for Fergus and also local identity and former Councillor of Snowy River John Allan whom also recently passed away. John was a long serving member of our Council and was also very committed to community. The South East region has lost two champions.

Progress on the planning of an upgraded band shell

Further to discussions on the future of the Band Shell in Centennial Park, the organizing Committee has met and discussed in depth the comments and recommendations from the Public Meeting held a week or so ago. This meeting endorsed the concept of have a series of separate but obviously connected parts to

an overall plan. It was seen as all important that there be an overall concept - the upgrading of the current structure, so that it would have wider use which would include its use as an outdoor theatre and having better shelter for both those on stage and for the audience. The Committee had obtained information from the Cooma Visitors

Centre on the use of the current band shell. In the twelve months from May 2014 it was booked 29 times, from 15 community organisations. Thus upgrading could mean its use could be extended to every week of the year, and obviously Cooma would greatly benefit from such an expansion of use.

Dugald Mitchell chaired the recent meeting to discuss changes to the Centennial Park bandshell.

COOMA

The total concept would mean an upgrading into an up-to-theminute outdoor theatre with better stage facilities, including lighting and other stage requirements, together with dressing rooms, and disabled access. Stage 1: The floor in the band shell to be made level by placing a false level floor on the current sloping one. There will be need in doing this to provide some sort of fence along the front of the higher stage. Stage 2: The back of the band shell to be closed in by a suitable designed side wings and corridor, and the incorporation of a disability lift. The corridor could also serve as a temporary dressing room. There would need to be access to a vehicle unloading dock, and a tri truss hanging system for light, sound, banners, and props. Stage 3: The construction of a new, on the ground, stage 8 x 8 metres in front of the current band shell. There would need for it to have a good dancing floor , and the design of steps up to the existing stage within the band shell. Stage 4: The redesign of the Council facilities at the back of the band shell and the building of suitable dressing rooms, bathroom,

kitchen, all connected to the existing corridor and disabled lift. It should also allow the storage on roller storage racks for 200 chairs to be placed out around the stages for audiences. Stage 5: Suitable cover for the new stage, and audiences. The third option presented to the meeting which follows the current lines of the band shell was thought to be the best. How this would be designed and then constructed will need a great deal of detailed work. Stage 6: Landscaping and water feature. Obviously this would finish off the upgrading. The area between the band shell and the Visitors Centre would be included in this landscaping. Stage 7: The Visitors Centre could be upgraded too, with large glass doors and perhaps walls facing out to the park. A “lead to� kitchen on the wall of the Visitors Centre could service tables and chairs in the area between the Visitor Centre and the band shell. However this needs to be planned quite separately. The Organising committee wants comments, for or against any of these ideas, and hopes to have some idea of costs before it is presented to the Recreational Committee of the Shire in August. Any further comments are therefore needed before August 10 and should be sent to dugaldmitchell2@ gmail.com or Box 42 PO Cooma.

Jindabyne CWA Care packages for Cooma Hospital During one of their more recent regular Wednesday morning sessions, the members of the Jindabyne CWA craft group were discussing the number of emergency transports the local paramedics make to Cooma Hospital, particularly during the ski season. They decided that as part of the branch’s community outreach program, they would begin collecting spare toiletries to donate to Cooma Hospital for the use of any emergency admission patients. In a bizarre twist of fate, that

very afternoon one member of the group found herself being unexpectedly admitted to Cooma Hospital’s emergency department! As Barbara Daley was being wheeled to the ward for her overnight stay, she mentioned that all she wanted to do was to have a shower, clean her teeth and go to sleep. There was one glitch. Thanks to the nature of her admission Barbara didn’t have any toiletries with her. “Not a problem” said her nurse, “I will get you a Care Package”. Off she went and returned

moments later with a bag full of bath wash, toothpaste, toothbrush to mention the most important, all donated by the Jerangle branch of the CWA. And so the Jindabyne CWA members began collecting in earnest. A few weeks later they had gathered together sufficient toiletries to make up 30 care packages. Each package contains at the very least shampoo, body wash or soap, moisturiser, a tooth brush and toothpaste. Ten of them also include basic shaving equipment. The bags were presented to the staff on Level A at Cooma Hospital on Thursday July 30 by Barbara Daley, President Dale Whitfield (also a physiotherapist at the hospital’s hydrotherapy pool) and Rosemary Stewart-Beardsley.

The first of five planned high-flow environmental water releases to the Snowy River are set to commence in mid-August, DPI Water Director Surface Water Management Paul Simpson, said today. “These high-flow water releases are designed to better mimic the natural flow characteristics that are seen in Snowy Mountain rivers, with the aim of improving the long-term health of the iconic Snowy River,” Mr Simpson said. “The release of environmental water into the Snowy River over a series of high-flow events has been successfully trialled over the last two years. “There are two scheduled releases during winter this year to reflect the natural timing of high-flow events. “Downstream landholders are being encouraged to make appropriate plans ahead of the water releases, including moving pumps and infrastructure to higher ground. The planned high-flow releases are: • Wednesday 12 August – equivalent peak flow 3,464 megalitres/ day for 8 hours • Monday 31 August – equivalent peak flow 1,949 megalitres/day for 8 hours • Wednesday 9 September – equivalent peak flow 3,217 megalitres/day for 8 hours • Wednesday 28 October – equivalent peak flow 8,110 megalitres/day for 8 hours • Wednesday 4 November – equivalent peak flow 2,973 megalitres/day for 8 hours

“This flow pattern includes a higher degree of daily and seasonal flow variability, but still maintaining the need to ensure high flow events occur in the Snowy, allowing the river to be reworked to improve the instream habitat. Mr Simpson said the results from previous studies from DPI Water’s Snowy Flow Response Monitoring and Modelling Program, show the Snowy River is responding well to the seasonal high- flow events. “The move to the five smaller flow release pattern has been demonstrated to make better use of the available water to establish a new smaller channel within the former channel of the Snowy River, wet the riparian zone and promote the establishment of aquatic and riparian vegetation. This year’s high flow events will once again be given culturally significant names by Aboriginal elders, reflecting their respective community’s connection with the rivers of the Snowy Mountains. Environmental water releases to the Snowy River are mandated under the Snowy Water Inquiry Outcomes Implementation Deed 2002, a trigovernment agreement between the Australian, New South Wales and Victorian Governments, to achieve significant improvements in river health. Further information about the Snowy River environmental releases is available on the DPI Water website – www.water.nsw.gov.au

Support local Government week The Member for Monaro John Barilaro has encouraged the community to get involved in Local Government Week which kicked off on Monday. Mr Barilaro said Local Government Week 2015 highlights the significance of local councils and the range of essential services they provide us all. “This year’s theme “Active All Areas” reminds us of the various age groups, cultures and religious groups Councils work with and also highlights Councils’ role in providing better services for people with a disability,” Mr

Barilaro said. “It’s important to recognise how much councils offer and how they tailor services for their local communities. “More than 45 thousand people work in the Local Government sector in NSW, managing assets worth $134 billion. “Local Government Week provides a fantastic opportunity for the community to take a closer look at their Council and better understand the services and facilities provided.” Minister for Local Government Paul Toole said Councils play an important role in our daily lives

and create great places for people to live, work and play. “Councils are involved in everything from promoting responsible pet ownership and dealing with dog attacks to planning, environmental management, organising local multicultural fairs and recreation centres,” Minister Toole said. The highlight of LG Week is the Local Government Awards Evening on August 6. LG Week launches on August 3 and closes on August 9. For more information on scheduled events contact your local council.

Education Open Day in Cooma Last week was Education Week and both of Cooma’s public primary schools celebrated by having an Education Open Day. At Cooma North, parents were invited to spend the day at school with their children for classroom visits, reading workshops and to join them on the playground for lunch. “It is really nice to get the parents in so that they can see what goes on in the classroom and so the students can show them what they can do and what they are learning,” says Cooma North Principal Belinda Jamieson. “We’re an all inclusive school and the open day is really a chance to celebrate that, and to celebrate the public school system.” There was also an assembly held where the children and parents got to hear from some of our local heroes in the community. There were local representatives of the Cooma Police, Fire and Rescue, Ambulance and local legislative member, Bronnie Taylor. These heroes spoke to the children about their different roles and how they all work together

to keep our community safe. At Cooma Public School, the Education Open Day was held on Thursday. In a school assembly, Mr Horneman led the school band in a performance before class 2/3K performed a dramatic reading of the book Sunday Chutney by Aaron Blabey. Principal Wendy Attwood took the opportunity to thank her dedicated staff for the amazing work they do, and the students for always proudly representing the school, the community and their families. There were also special awards given to two students from each class across the school who were picked by their teachers due to their consistent application in class. This assembly was also followed by classroom visits with parents. Pictured at top: Kindergarten to year 2 students awarded for their consistent application in the classroom.

Squeaky clean safe hands

Staff and visiting doctors at Cooma Hospital took part in a clean hands relay at the hospital last Friday morning. The relay was to reinforce hand hygiene and the need to keep hands clean when dealing with patients. Under the guidance of infections prevention and control officer Stephanie Robb, nurses and doctors were reminded how to properly use alcohol rubs on their hands. Thousands of people die every day around the world from infections acquired while receiving health care.

Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission during health care. Hand Hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission fo harmful germs and prevent heath care associated infections. Clean hands can be effectively cleaned by rubbing with an alcohol-based solution. Once they are dry, they are safe to use. Visibly soiled hands need to be washed with soap and water. Pictured, hospital manager Antje Badger and staff display the clean hands message.

Accountant Iain Elliott is pictured with Boyce dircetors Jono Forrest and Julie Schofield. Local young accountant, Iain Elliott is celebrating a very important milestone in his career, He has been awarded a Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accounting to become a qualified Chartered Accountant (CA). Last Thursday, Iain, his mother and brother attended the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand presentation ceremony in Sydney. Boyce directors Julie Schofield and Jono Forrest also attended the event to support and congratulate Iain on such an achievement. “Anyone who has attempted the CA program knows how tough it is and for Iain to achieve the results that he has is a very significant accomplishment” said Boyce Cooma director Jono Forrest. During his studies Iain achieved a rare feat in accounting terms having topped not just the State but the entire country, in the “Financial Accounting and

Reporting” module of the CA Program. “The entire Boyce team is in awe of Iain’s fantastic results - not only for what he achieved in this module but right the way through what is a very exacting course,” said Mr Forrest. Having completed his schooling at Monaro High, Iain went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Economics from the Australian National University in Canberra in 2010. He joined Boyce as a Graduate Accountant in 2011 and then in order to be accepted into the CA program, had to complete a bridging course through Deakin University. “Iain has worked very hard to achieve this outstanding result whilst being able to maintain a good work life balance, which I believe is a testament to his remarkable character – we are fortunate to have him as part of the Boyce team” said Mr Forrest.

India leaves Australia for United States exchange India Old has spent her entire life living in the small Snowy Mountains town of Jindabyne, surrounded by her extended family and close friends. Now, at 15 years of age, she has packed her bags, said goodbye to everyone she loves and hopped on a plane to the United States. The Year 10 Jindabyne Central School (JCS) student will spend most of the rest of this year living in the US state of Illinois as an exchange student. It’s been four years in the making and India couldn’t be happier to fulfil her dream of experiencing life as an American. Her quest to become an exchange student began when India was in Year Seven at JCS. “We had an exchange student at school and everyone was so excited about him coming and getting to meet him,” India said. “I remember thinking that would be such a good thing to do. I really wanted to do it too. “I have always loved America and its culture

and I thought it would be so cool to live there and experience it.” India will live in the small town of Villa Grove, which is similar in size to Jindabyne, and lies exactly halfway between Chicago and St. Louis. She will live with the Niemann Family, whom she has been in contact with via Skype, Facebook and the telephone since January. “I feel like I know them pretty well before I go,” said India, who will share her new home with parents Nikki and Steve, 17-year-old Brittany, 12-year-old Brooke and 10-year-old Blake. India is planning to embrace every aspect of living in the US, starting with plans to join the school cheerleading and volleyball teams. “I also want to do different subjects at school and try things that I don’t get to do here,” she said. “I will definitely miss my family and friends heaps but we’ve planned lots of weekend trips and I hope to make the most of my opportunity.”

Renovation rules to be overhauled Member for Monaro John Barilaro has welcomed a move by the NSW Government to re-write rules for building and renovating homes to make them more user-friendly. Mr Barilaro said NSW Government wants to make planning laws easier to understand for everyone. “Housing rules should be simpler for basic renovations homeowners want to make to their homes or investment properties,” Mr Barilaro said. “You shouldn’t require a degree in planning to add an extra room to your house.

“This announcement is a step in the right direction to rewrite our renovation rules and make sure neighbours keep each other in the loop before work begins.” An online video has been released to encourage discussion between neighbours before they renovate their homes. Proposed changes to the Housing Code will be exhibited for public feedback later in the year. To view the video clip visit: https://www. youtube.com/user/ nswplanning

India’s family has been hosting American exchange student Kate Bralower this year and India plans to meet with her “exchange sister” in New York once Kate returns to her home country in late September. India flew out of Australia on July 28 will return home to Jindabyne on December 18 and start back at JCS in 2016 as a Year 11 student. In

the meantime, she has a long list of “mustdos” to fulfil. “I’m really excited to go and a little bit nervous but mostly very excited to meet new people and learn about new things,” said India.

National Tree Day at Cooma Public BOMBALA COUNCIL GENERAL MANAGER: Ms Ngaire McCrindle This week is Local Government Week and a good time to reflect back on the past few months. It has certainly been a busy time with the Fit for the Future process, meetings and submission as well as Council budgets and plans, all completed by 30 June. Highlights of the past six months include the very successful Centenary of Anzac Memorial dedication event, the two local Agricultural Shows, International Women’s Day celebrations and the famous Delegate Duck Race. Council continues to be proactive in its efforts to progress the local community and has recently approved the allocation of $250,000 towards developing a health/fitness facility at the Bombala Swimming Pool complex. In addition a new 355 committee will be exploring options to enclose the existing pool. In a first for the Council, we have been involved with both the Southern Phones and Boco Rock Community Fund grant processes. These programs have seen many important community projects funded and we are looking forward to the continuation of both these programs which greatly assist all our hardworking community groups. Council also completed a number of major works including the Burton Street Corner, Delegate Road, Endeavour Reserve Road and Creewah Road to name a few, as well as a signage project around the Bombala River walking track and the Railway Precinct and completing of the new amenities block at Delegate Show Grounds.

Students of Cooma Public School planted three young trees on Friday to celebrate Planet Ark’s 20th National Tree Day. The activity for the year 3 to 6 students was organised by John Chapman through the school’s science program. With great shirts and gloves donated to the school by Toyota through High Country Automotive, and the trees themselves by the Cooma Monaro Shire Council, the planting was a true community event. Not only did the activity aim at teaching children the importance of the role of trees in the environment, but also the skills to learn how to plant them.

WOOD SMOKE – HELP KEEP OUR AIR CLEAN Wood smoke Reduction Program Better use of wood heaters can help with improving the air quality in our Shire. - Use dry fuel and seasoned timber - Adjust air damper to all air flow to maintain burn - Ensure the fire burn bright to reduce smoke emissions If the air flow is reduced to the heater and the fire is allowed to smoulder – more smoke is made and you will find the not all the fuel will burn thoroughly. When purchasing or gathering wood

-

ensure that it is dry and well-seasoned when two pieces are struck together dry wood will give a “clack”, unseasoned will give a dull “clunk”. Never use treated copper chrome-arsenate wood – this will release poisonous fumes. Never burn garbage, painted timber or particle board – these release pollutants.

ORANA AVENUE WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT WORKS Work has commenced on the watermain replacement works in Orana Avenue, Cooma.

Meals on Wheels originated in Britain during World War II to help frail older people remain at home. Meals on Wheels first commenced in Australia in 1952 with a lady riding a tricycle delivering meals. Cooma Meals on Wheels Service is operated through Council and commenced on 17 November 1969 with 14 meals and the Ambulance Administration Vehicle was used to deliver the meals.

RESIDUAL WASTE BIN AUDIT Cooma Monaro Shire Council’s Resource and Waste Services would like to advise residents that Council will be conducting bin audits, in the Cooma township kerbside collection area during the month of August. These audits are a requirement of the Environment Protection Authority and form part of the Waste Less Recycle More Initiative funded by the Local Government Organics Collection Grant that Council has secured for the Food and Garden Waste Collection Service. The audits will involve collecting two hundred and twenty samples (220 x 120litre bins) over a two week period. These samples are collected at random and the data is used for statistical purposes only. Council is required to do a representative survey of the waste going to landfill prior & post, to the introduction of the Food and Garden waste bin service rollout. Householders should continue to manage their waste as they normally would and to not change their behaviour during the audit.

Council will use a “random number Generator” in the field, so that the first house number is selected randomly and without record, with each second or fifth household sampled from this starting point. At no time will the waste sample collected be connected to an address. The audit is based on NSW Department of Environment and Heritage guidelines for conducting a household kerbside residual waste audit. Council will follow strict protocols on privacy and confidentiality to ensure individual household information is safeguarded during the audit. Cooma Monaro Shire Council is bound by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998. To this context the audit will be conducted. If households would prefer to be excluded from the audit or would like further information, please contact Jeff Tate on 64551922.

Community connection vital to wellbeing of older Aussies Whiddon report reveals almost half a million Aussies 65 and over crave more social contact Sydney, 15 July, 2015: New findings from aged care specialists Whiddon in their latest Social Isolation and Loneliness research reveals that as many as 415,000 Australians aged 65 and over crave more social contact. Of these, a huge 71 per cent stated they wanted more interaction with their community, well ahead of more contact with friends (40%) and family (30%). Looking closer at the research it highlights that community connection is even more crucial for those aged over 65 who are living on their own, representing 924,000 people in Australia. A large proportion of this group experience little to no social interaction. One in four only receive a visitor fortnightly to monthly and 14 per cent even less often than that. This includes 30,000 older people who rarely or never receive company in their homes. A further 108,000 of all respondents find it difficult to get out

Musica da Camera, formed in 1979, is a Canberra-based string chamber orchestra of 20 or so players. For over 30 years this group has been delighting Canberra audiences as well as music lovers throughout the region. Musica da Camera is an outstanding orchestra with tradition of performing with some of Australia's most gifted soloists.

and about in the community. Karn Nelson, Executive General Manager Strategic Policy and Research, Whiddon, said, “Fostering close connections within community and maintaining social interaction, interests and activities is absolutely essential to the wellbeing of older Australians, for both physical and mental health reasons. Several studies have shown links between loneliness and social isolation and ill health, in particular the development of cognitive decline, depression and cardiovascular disease.” The health and wellbeing implications for the elderly in Australia is a hidden and growing social issue. The number of people in Australia aged 65 years and over is projected to exceed the number of children aged 0-14 years for the first time ever around the year 2025*. Karn continues, “Whilst it’s true that many older Australians are happy with the amount of social contact they have, the number who are not is still worryingly high. To combat this it is crucial to provide older people with the opportunities and support needed to access social activities, interest and community groups. We also need to raise awareness about the huge difference that small and regular gestures of kindness and social inclusion can make to the lives of those who are isolated. “We know that we risk having to deal with massive health and wellbeing implications nationwide if we don’t find solutions to keeping our older people connected to their communities. At Whiddon, we have seen our clients’ quality of life improve significantly when we build in and create opportunities for regular outings and social activities to their weekly schedule. We also offer broad Creative Ageing activities and projects to help our clients engage with others, express themselves and feel included.”

BERRIDALE BUS SHELTER A LITTLE BIT BRIGHTER

NEW FUN IN LIONS PARK As part of the ongoing implementation of the Snowy River Playground Strategy a new piece of play equipment the ‘starsurfer’ will be installed to replace the outdated slippery dip in Lions Park Jindabyne in the coming weeks. This space is highly utilised by young people because of its close proximity to Jindabyne Central School and town. Consultation occurred with the Snowy Youth Council in the selection of the replacement piece “We as youth are excited that our input into this project has been taken into consideration and that this attraction will be put in the park” said members of the Snowy Youth Council. Council will be continuing to implement its Playground Strategy and work with key users throughout the Shire over the coming year.

the

postman calls

While winter is trying to hang for a while longer, the birds are telling us something different. For the last week or so The Postman has noticed the resident magpies, currawongs and crows all flying about the place with leaves, twigs, etc, hanging from their beaks. Now, either they are on a Keep Cooma Clean campaign or they are building their nests ready for springtime. The Postman sincerely hopes it is the latter – the daily argument with firelighters that don’t, matches that only light as the head snaps off and flies through the air and the ongoing wood chopping has worn very, very thin. This week’s predicted snowfalls should give the resorts a great late season cover. But can we avid gardeners have a little warmth and sunshine now, please? Friday night’s art auction should be a lot of fun. Local celebrities have contributed their pieces and some of those are really very clever. Money raised will be going to an excellent cause. Why not attend and be wowed by the works?

Thank you Cooma I wish to write this short testimonial in regards to my rewarding experience with the Cooma Monaro Work Integrated Program. The program has been initiated by the Cooma and Monaro Progress Association in conjunction with the University of Canberra. The program allows students to gain valuable real world work experience and as well, to foster relationships and provide insights into the business they are assigned to. The business gains in that they get a fresh, enthusiastic and knowledgeable student, who can help assist with any issues they may have. From all accounts and reports from both students and business the program has been successful. I spent a week with my nominated business, and learnt so much about an industry I had never encountered previously, plus challenged myself in tasks that were not related to studies. I have forged some key relationships with the CMPA and appreciate the time and effort everyone took to make me feel comfortable and welcome. Cooma has a lovely ambience and the locals are warm, friendly and inviting. As I was there on my own, I know the time and effort that each member of the CMPA took out of their own time to chauffer me around and to arrange to get me to and from Cooma. I really enjoyed my time and experience. I was assigned to a family owned business, which has been in existence for over 30yrs. The owners are directors of the business and have a great understanding of the industry they operate within. My role was to help them with content for their website, however I recognised the need for a new e-business model (website) that will suit the business needs and give them greater exposure.

They agreed to this and I have commissioned another student to help with the project. It was interesting to hear of the difficulties and uncertainty facing their business, and how they have positioned themselves to overcome these difficulties. I was able to discuss a variety of issues and ideas that they could implement, for example utilising a web portal to create a secondary market for their products, and highlighting their relationship with international companies . It was heart-warming to hear of the way they have supported the local communities in around the surrounding areas of the Cooma-Monaro region and provide an important function in educating the next generation as to the importance of their industry. As a student who just recently finished the program I would encourage other students to participate in as the experience gained and potential opportunities down the track are limitless. Essentially the student acts on a consulting basis for the business. I feel that there is a real opportunity to provide some real economic benefits to Cooma based on this program. By opening the program to more faculties it exposes Cooma to the students and may even encourage them to move to the region, and also can specifically match the skills of the student to the issues faced. Finally I wish to thank Ian Ware, Dugald Mitchell, Tom Keevers, and the business directors for their help and support in making it a wonderful experience for me.

Investors have been dealt another blow by Australia’s lenders, with many banks raising their interest rates in recent days. Over the last week, many of Australia’s lenders, including ANZ, CBA, NAB, Macquarie and AMP, have announced they will increase their interest rates on existing investor loans by up to 30 basis points. Mortgage Choice CEO John Flavell said the hike in interest rate pricing for investors should not come as a surprise given that the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has spent the last few months trying to crack down on the proportion of investor lending activity. “There are a couple of reasons for the price hikes. In the first instance, in December last year the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) told Australia’s lenders that they must limit their investment lending growth to 10% each year. As a result, a number of

Australia’s lenders have started to increase their investment lending loan pricing and introduced a range of policies (that predominately affect investors) to curb their investment lending growth,” Mr Flavell said. “Furthermore, in recent weeks, APRA announced a change to the amount of capital the major banks must hold in order to manage the inherent risk in mortgage lending. In order to recoup this cost, some of the major lenders have been forced to raise their interest rates. At present, the hikes have been limited to investment loans as this is one buyer group that many lenders are looking to limit their exposure to anyway.” Mr Flavell said it was important to note that the changes being made, especially any rate increases, wouldn’t just affect potential investors but existing investors as well. “Those who financed their investment

property purchase through CBA, NAB, ANZ, Macquarie or ANZ may see their interest rate rise over the coming weeks,” he/she said. “For those customers who are concerned about how the changes may impact them, it may be wise to speak to a professional. “At the end of the day, the changes being made are only being made by a handful of lenders and at Mortgage Choice, we have access to hundreds of home loan products from our panel of up to 25 lenders, so we are in the perfect position to help people understand the impacts of these changes and to determine if there is a better investment loan available to suit their needs.” If you would like learn more about your home loan or financial advice options call 13 66 78.

Threat of higher rates encourages borrowers to fix Demand for fixed rate home loans enjoyed a slight boost last month, new data has revealed. According to the latest national home loan approval data from Mortgage Choice, fixed rate home loans accounted for 18.46% of all loans written throughout the month of July – up from 17.58% the month prior. “Over the month of July, many lenders announced they would raise their interest rates across some products,” Mortgage Choice chief executive officer John Flavell said. “The price increases come as many of Australia’s lenders continue to make some significant changes to their lending practices in a bid to curb investment lending growth. “Our data would suggest the threat of rising interest rates was enough to

encourage more borrowers to fix their mortgage.” With so many of Australia’s lenders making changes to their policy and pricing, Mr Flavell said the home loan environment is becoming increasingly “more complex for borrowers”. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see another slight uptick in fixed rate home loan demand next month as borrowers look for some stability and certainty around their mortgage repayments,” he said. Across the country, fixed rate demand was highest in New South Wales, with this type of home loan accounting for 26.83% of all loans written across the state in July. Queensland and Western Australia were next, with fixed rate home loans accounting for 16.33% and 15.35% of all loans written in those states respectively. Demand for fixed rate products was

lowest in South Australia and Victoria, with this type of mortgage product accounting for 10.68% and 11.87% respectively. But while fixed rate demand was up across the country, variable rate home loans continued to prove most popular with borrowers. Most specifically, variable rate home loans with an ongoing discount were highly sought after, with 45.37% of all Mortgage Choice customers in July selecting this type of home loan. “There is a lot of change happening in the home loan environment at the moment, which is highlighted by the fact that fixed rate demand varies quite substantially from month to month. With so much happening in the market, it has never been more important for potential borrowers to do their due diligence and speak with a professional to ensure they are getting the right home loan for their needs,” Mr Flavell said.

Investment changes fail to deter property investors Despite the fact that many of Australia’s banks are making sweeping changes to their investment lending policy and pricing, a majority of potential investors are still keen to make their mark on the property market. New data from Mortgage Choice’s 2015 Investor Survey found 54% of potential investors would still look to push ahead with their investment plans despite the fact that many lenders are actively making it harder for some investors to purchase property. Mortgage Choice chief executive officer John Flavell said it is clear that the majority of investors still see property investment as a lucrative investment strategy and a clever way to future proof their wealth. “When we asked potential investors whether or not now was a good time to invest, more than 70% said yes, which goes some way to explaining why so many potential investors are not deterred by the spate of pricing and policy changes being made by many of Australia’s lenders,� he said. In recent weeks, many of Australia’s lenders have made some sweeping changes to their investment lending policies, including but not limited to restrictions on maximum loan-to-value ratios, the removal of discretionary pricing on investment loans and increased floor rates for loan servicing. Further, over the past week, a number of Australia’s major lenders have announced their plans to increase their interest rates for investors, with one lender actually increasing its investor interest rates by 47 basis points. While these changes will impact all investors, Mr Flavell said it is the first timers and mum and dad investors who are ultimately hardest hit. “Our data shows an increasing number of investors are actually Gen Y’s who are purchasing

property for the first time. For many younger buyers, purchasing an investment property before an owner occupied property gives them the opportunity to purchase where they can afford while still living where they want. “We should be encouraging these people to buy property, not hindering them at every turn. Unfortunately, the changes many of the lenders are making are putting these buyers off.� Drilling further into the data from the 2015 Investor Survey it is clear that younger buyers are more likely to be affected by the recent spate of investment changes to policy and pricing. “While on average 54% of investors said the changes wouldn’t affect their investment plans, the story was a little different for Gen Y buyers,� Mr Flavell said. “Just 45% of those born between 1980 and now said the investment changes wouldn’t affect their property plans, meaning most would be affected by the changes. “Baby boomers by comparison, were far less likely to be put off by the changes, with just 30% saying any changes would affect their property investment plans. “If lenders are going to continue to make substantial changes to their investment lending policy and pricing, they need to consider who they are trying to impact. If the goal is to stop first home buyers and mums and dads from purchasing investment properties, then mission accomplished. “If lenders are just trying to curb their overall level of investment activity, then perhaps they should consider pulling other levers that will impact cashedup investors and foreign investors.� If you would like learn more about your home loan or financial advice options, call 13 6678.

Bucket Brigades are back in town for McHappy day Monaro community groups invited to join a Bucket Brigade

McHappy Day is the biggest fundraising event on the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) calendar and Monaro community groups can show their support by forming a ‘Bucket Brigade’ to help the charity raise a record breaking $3.4 million for seriously ill children and their families. On Saturday 17th October this year, McHappy Day will bring the community together for a fun family day out while raising much needed funds for RMHC’s essential programs and services. Local community groups including businesses, dance groups, the fire brigade and ambulance services, are encouraged to get out, get involved and support seriously ill children and their families by volunteering their time to help collect donations in fundraising buckets at their local McDonald’s restaurant on the day. Demand for RMHC services has grown exponentially since the charity first begun with the number

of people staying at a Ronald McDonald House alone growing from 34 in 1981 to over 6500 in 2014. “The power of family closeness is a driving factor in the work of RMHC, with families telling us that their ability to stay together during their child’s treatment has a positive effect on both their child’s psychological well-being and on the pace of recovery,” said Nicole Carmichael, McDonald’s Cooma licensee. Since its inception McHappy Day has raised over $28 million for RMHC and the Ronald McDonald Houses have collectively provided over 96,000 families with over 2.7 million bed nights, however the need for RMHC services continues to grow with demand from families increasing. “Bucket Brigades are a simple and easy way for people in the Monaro community to get involved and help us reach our target of $3.4 million this year, which equates to providing over 25,000 nights

accommodation for families at one of the 16 Ronald McDonald Houses across Australia,” added Nicole. 100 per cent of funds raised on the day go directly to RMHC to ensure they can continue providing much needed programs and services for seriously ill children

entitlement that’s been brewing in a lot of people for quite a while now. In this case it is a 22-yearold American girl who went public because her parents have refused to hand over the $10,000 shortfall she has in regards to her university fees. Like, this kind of exposure is going to make them hand over the money now? Initially she had the full amount because she had grandparents who were generous enough to gift her the funds for her fees and it all would have been fine except the young lady opted to spend some of the money on a few non-university things, like a trip to Europe for

one, hence the $10,000 hole and now she feels her parents should make it up for her, her argument to support her request being that her father has “...like, worked for a million years and they have a big retirement fund...”. But that fund is theirs, right? Suggestions that the young lady could either a) get a part time job to cover the shortfall or b) get a bank loan and then a part time job to repay the loan have been met with shock and horror on her part which is why she decided to go public in the hope she might shame them into coughing up the dollars. Well yes, she has admitted in a roundabout way that maybe she was a little bit (???) irresponsible with the money but she fails to understand that having been so, it is now her responsibility to correct the situation. Like I said at the beginning, laughable. But the trend is growing among a number of young adults who expect quite a lot to be handed to them on a platter and can get downright antsy when parents close the “bank”. And why shouldn’t parents draw the line? Once the kids reach

their majority then it’s pretty much up to them to fund their own lifestyle choices and if they get themselves into debt in the process then it’s also up to them to find/ fund their own way out of it. Sure, parents will generally come to the rescue with financial help in the case of a genuine emergency that no one saw coming but I don’t think they should be expected to operate as ATMs to prop up kids’ who refuse to budget for the things they want. Some things just have to be worked for, including a nice lifestyle and that can’t always happen straight away. In the case of the American student... she is 22-years-old which is old enough I think to have known better than to spend a hefty amount of her tuition fees on irrelevant stuff. She is also old enough to see her own way out of it and she is certainly old enough to have realised that publicly broadcasting her annoyance at her parents’ failure to bail her out of a problem of her own making was probably not the best way to go. Hopefully she learns something from the experience.

27 Ever considered a career in local government? Wednesday August 5, 2015

Fuel excise change a boost for local roads Councils across Australia will receive an extra $1.105 billion over the next two years from the Australian Government for local road and street works following the reintroduction of Consumer Price Index-linked fuel excise. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said every cent of the extra $23 billion revenue raised through the excise over the next decade and beyond will be invested in roads infrastructure. “The Government has reached agreement with the Labor Party for the passage of the fuel

excise indexation legislation, an important element in our Budget repair plan,� Mr Truss said. “As part of our ongoing commitment to road infrastructure, we will provide an additional $1.105 billion specifically for the Roads to Recovery Programme over the next two years. “This popular roads programme was introduced by the H o w a rd / A n d e r s o n Gover nment. Since coming to government, we have expanded it and made it permanent to give local government and their communities the surety they need that local roads will be future-proofed. “What today’s

decision means is that local governments across Australia will receive an extra $300 million in 2015-16 under Roads to Recovery, on top of the $700 million they are already receiving – a $1 billion cash injection in local roads over the next 12 months. “In 2016-17, local government will receive an extra $805 million in addition to the $350 million they were already scheduled to receive under Roads to Recovery – $1.155 billion next financial year. “Since the programme began in early 2001, councils have used the funding provided to repair and upgrade

more than 45,000 local streets and road locations, making it the largest investment in Australia’s local roads ever undertaken. “Today we are ensuring many thousands more will be built and repaired.� Tying the indexation of the fuel excise to changes in inflation will provide the Australian Government with a predictable and guaranteed source of revenue to build the infrastructure Australia needs. “For a motorist who consumes 50 litres of fuel each week, the impact amounts to just 40 cents, an impact that will be minimised through congestion-busting road infrastructure,�

Mr Truss said. “Importantly, the Roads to Recovery Programme allows councils to directly fund local road projects based on local needs, with local knowledge playing a major role in the programme’s success.� The fuel excise will increase twice a year in February and August, in line with movements of the Consumer Price Index. The extra $1.105 billion being pumped into Roads to Recovery will be paid to councils under the usual formula as part of their regular quarterly payments without any requirement for councils to match the extra money.

Locals heading to City 2 Surf for Motor Neuron Disease For their fourth year, team MND Cooma are heading up to Sydney for the renowned City 2 Surf event on Sunday. The team of 17 are raising funds for the Motor Neuron Disease (MND) Association of NSW. All members have had their lives touched by MND either through a friend or family member. “It’s a really great cause and one that is very important to all of us,” says local team MND member Jodie Swain, “The City 2 Surf is a great way to raise funds and awareness for MND, among many other charities.” The City 2 Surf is a 14km course running from Sydney’s CBD to Bondi beach. Team MND try and maintain a training regime all year round, often getting up at 6am to brave the dark and frosty Cooma mornings for a jog. “It’s a good place to train because of the high

altitude,” says Jodie, “When we get down to Sydney, we can really breathe and we actually find the course quite easy.” Thanks to a mammoth effort last year, the team managed to raise more than $9000 collectively. They hope to better that amount this year and are calling for the support of their friends in the community to donate to their worthy cause. To give them your donation, head to the team page at city2surf2015. everydayhero.com/au/team-mndcooma or come in and see Jodie at Mark Kenmir & Co on Bombala St, Cooma. The cut-off date for donations is September 9th.

Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair, has announced the search was now underway for a new Chair of the Local Land Services Board of Chairs. “Local Land Services has a crucial role to play to drive productivity growth in our primary industries sector, while protecting our natural resources and assisting in emergency management – and we need to make sure that we have a world class Chair of Chairs at the helm,� Mr Blair said. “The organisation is on the cusp of truly transforming the

service delivery landscape in rural and regional NSW, while focusing on local decision-making accountability and customer service – and appointing a new Chair is vital to this.� The high-calibre individual would lead and coordinate the contribution of the 11 Local Boards that make up Local Lands Services. This person will be responsible to advise an organisation with an operational budget of $180 million, a significant frontline workforce and a single focus to see their communities thrive

and succeed. The new Chair will help devise sophisticated and innovative strategies to direct the delivery of major agricultural production advice, biosecurity, natural resource management and emergency management. Local Land Services commenced in January 2014 and delivers quality, customer-focused services to farmers, landholders and the community across rural and regional NSW. The Chair of the Local Land Services’ Board of Chairs is responsible for the performance of the organisation across NSW.

Volunteers fighting willows for fish Livestock health watch Fish numbers will be improved thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers who have just finished a project to control invasive willows along the Upper Murrumbidgee River, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today. The project, funded by a NSW Government Recreational Fishing Trust Habitat Action Grant, has added to previous fish habitat restoration works which have been undertaken in the reach. Mr Barilaro said the project area included known habitat for three threatened native freshwater fish – Murray cod, Trout cod and Macquarie perch and contained large sections of inaccessible gorge country. “The willow control and mapping project has made a significant contribution to maintaining and improving habitat for some of our most iconic freshwater fish species,� said Mr Barilaro. “It is another fantastic example of what an engaged local community can achieve for river health and native fish and the Habitat Action Grants at work in our local waterways.�

Volunteer and project coordinator Antia Brademan said the willow control program was a huge success. “We held 17 canoe days and trained and engaged 93 volunteers as part of the project and achieved an 85% success rate with willow control which was an excellent result given the remoteness of the sites targeted,� Ms Brademan said. “This project has demonstrated to us and other river management groups that a team of trained volunteers can be really effective for weed control activities, especially for strategic environmental weeding in otherwise pristine habitats.� Applications for the 2015-16 Recreational Fishing Trust funded Habitat Action Grants will be opening in mid-August. To find out more about applying for your own fish habitat rehabilitation project or for assistance with project planning email fish.habitat@dpi.nsw. gov.au or ring 02 4916 3817 or 02 6626 1107.

Go west Rural Fire Services NSW Farmers is backing calls to move the Rural Fire Service (RFS) headquarters to the central west region of NSW. Farmers from Mudgee, Orange and Peak Hill won widespread support at the NSW Farmers’ annual conference to lobby for a city to country relocation for the RFS. NSW Farmers’ Executive Councillor Reg Kidd said moving to the central west aligned with the state government’s Decentralisation Taskforce policy. “This is a perfect opportunity to move a government department to a rural region without impacting on its effectiveness and efficiency,� Mr Kidd said. The NSW RFS may be forced to leave its headquarters in Sydney because of land zoning

changes and can only remain in its current location until the end of its lease in 2018. Mr Kidd cited other successful city to country moves for government agencies, such as the Department of Primary Industries relocation to Orange. “Moving the RFS to a rural region would also provide a greater sense of ownership amongst rural and regional communities, which is who the RFS serves.� Mr Kidd said a move out of Sydney would also remove problems associated with traffic and general city based congestion. “There would also have to be some cost savings, particularly in relation to property acquisition or leasing rates,� he concluded.

South East Local Land Services district veterinarians have seen an increase in the number cases of pregnancy toxaemia in sheep and grass tetany in cows across the region. District Veterinarian, Bill Johnson said these issues are related to the winter decline in pasture quality and quantity and the cycle for calving and lambing. “Pregnancy toxaemia in sheep, and the related condition of ketosis in beef cows, are more prevalent this year as many producers struggled to control the weight of ewes and cows with the abundance of autumn feed,� Mr Johnson said. “Those same ewes and cows are now losing weight late in pregnancy due to heavy frosts reducing pasture growth and quality. “South East Local Land Services has seen several cases where ewes in late pregnancy carrying large twin lambs have little room left for food and they can’t eat enough of the bulky, low quality frosted pasture to sustain themselves. “Ewes with pregnancy toxaemia separate from the mob, do not eat, become drowsy or comatose and exhibit nervous system signs such as tremors and blindness. They may lie about for up to 3 to 4 days and then die. Early diagnosis and treatment with oral energy supplements and an anti-

inflammatory injection may help to save those ewes still on their feet. A change to a better pasture or feeding an energy supplement is required urgently to correct the energy imbalance for the rest of the mob.� Grass tetany has been causing deaths in cows across the region since autumn. “Winter grass dominant pastures or crops are notoriously low in magnesium, calcium and sodium and high in potassium and nitrogen, limiting the availability of magnesium to cows,� Mr Johnson said. “Cattle only have a small store of magnesium and must continually replenish magnesium used to make milk, so they are most at risk when feeding a calf. Higher milk producers are more at risk, as are older fatter cows, especially Angus and Angus crosses. Any additional stress on cattle such as bad weather, mustering or time off feed may trigger grass tetany. The most effective and commonly used preventative is to feed hay treated with magnesium oxide. If daily feeding of hay is not possible some producers find that offering a loose lick in the paddock can offer some protection.� For more information and advice, please contact your nearest South East Local Land Services district veterinarian on 1300 795 299.

RIRDC to unveil research insights This afternoon, the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) will release three new research reports from its National Rural Issues program in Canberra. The National Rural Issues program aims to consider themes that cover multiple industries and in areas where industry and government leaders need independent advice to help inform their roles. Authored by some of Australia’s leading rural industry experts from organisations like the CSIRO, the Australian Farm Institute and various universities, the reports highlight lessons which will help inform the future positioning of the Australian agricultural sector. The reports include: ‘Australian Farm Business Performance – insights from effective farm business managers’ contributes to an improved understanding of farm business performance across selected Australian agricultural

industries. It provides insights into how highly effective producers analyse and innovate in their businesses to achieve their goals. Geographical Indications of Origin have so far only been used for wine in Australia. However the ‘Provenance of Australian food products – is there a place for Geographical Indications?’ argues that there is reason to seriously consider potential advantages of such a tool for regional development. For example this tool has facilitated the promotion of premium wine and associated tourism in Queensland, a state not normally associated with wine production. ‘Collective Bargaining in the Agricultural Sector’ examines why Australian farmers seem to underutilise the provisions of competition law which would enable collective action in purchasing and selling.

High Heelers’ first season ends at hands of Cooma Fillies

Last Saturday the Bombala High Heelers took the field in the knock out semi final of the group 16 competition. Their opponents were the Cooma Fillies. The High Heelers started well with a great defensive set followed by strong runs from Keiarna Rodwell, Lucy Sellars and Trina Brownlie to gain good field possession. Numerous break away runs from Tash Stewart, Chloe Hodak and Maree Coates were soon shut down by the strong, eagle-eye tagging of Cooma’s fullback Kate Schofield. However the pressure mounted for the Fillies as the

Heelers continued with good field possession. A set play to the left saw Monique Ingram offload to Lucy Sellers with an overlap out wide, Sellers then popped the ball to Janine Jamieson who was able to dart her way across on the wing to score first points for the game. Maree Coates made a valiant attempt to convert from out wide but the kick was waved away leaving the score at 4-0. As the half time hooter loomed the Fillies began to create momentum on the back of tiring Heeler legs and the elusive running of Alicia Bolton capitalised to

shimmy through the Bombala defence scoring for the Fillies. Kate Schofield was able to slot the 2 pointer putting the Fillies ahead 6-4. Despite the great tagging efforts of Maree Coates, Emma Sullivan and Tash Stewart just seconds out from the hooter sounding it was Bolton who again broke the line to score under the posts for the Fillies, cementing their lead to 12-4. The Heelers were extremely focused on shutting down any of the attacking efforts the Fillies through at them. Emma Sullivan and Sue Morgan held strong in the middle tagging well and setting up

play. The combination of Monique Ingram and Tash Stewart again saw Stewart put points on the board out wide for the Heelers. The conversion was waved away and the fillies still led 12-8. Jane Peadon, Amy Stone and Kaylee Keavey took strong run ups in attack and Maree Coates began to mix up play using chip kicks to keep the defenders second guessing. Sam Ingram proved tough to handle, making forceful runs and often defending multiple tags in a row. However, to the Fillies credit they were able to wrap the ball up and keep the Heelers from

crossing the line again. Whilst the 2 tries each score line showed how even the contest was it wasn’t enough for the Heelers, conversions making the difference with the final score line 12-8 in the Fillies favour. The High Heelers finish the group 16 League Tag contest in fourth place, a valiant effort for the new team. The High Heelers thank the Fillies for the well-fought, clean, competitive hit-out and wish them well for the rest of the season. As always the High Heelers would like to thank all those who supported them throughout the season.

Thredbo Masters 2015 Colts U16s strong win at home Rupert Winkler of Canberra, with a time of 109.66 was the overall male with the fastest time and Jindabyne’s Alice Chilcott with a combined time over 2 runs, of 112.19 was the overall fastest female competing in the 35th Thredbo Masters Giant Slalom held on Saturday 25th. It is the fifth year in a succession that Rupert has been the fastest male. 186 man and women aged between 34 and 82 raced on a demanding course due to fresh moist snow conditions, of 38 gates with a vertical drop of 205 metres on Thredbo’s Long Rossignol Course.

Cooma Colts under 16’s versus Queanbeyan United under 16’s. Thanks to Lachlan Inskip and Liam Rankin from the under 15’s that played with us due to injuries in our team. Unfortunately Carson Barrett, Joel Saville, Alexander Swan and Matthew Robinson were unable to play and both these boys stepped up and played a fantastic game, so thank you from us all Lachlan and Liam. Cooma turned on fantastic conditions for a game of football, yes, it was fresh but the moon was bright and the atmosphere was amazing. Friday night was on our turf which meant Queanbeyan United travelled to our home ground to come up against a game that the Colts wanted to win, and win they did. The first half proved to be a strong and determined game. Colts ran on strongly and held their ground the whole time. Teamwork, ball skills, strong runs, dynamic defence and just all out

fantastic game choices allowed Colts to score tries and bring our boys to a comfortable lead by half time. In the second half the Colts had to work a bit harder as Queanbeyan decided that they didn’t travel all this way for no points, Queanbeyan was able to score a couple of times in the second half, but were unable to break the Colts power and the Colts determination to keep this game in their pockets bringing the final score to 32 – 10 Cooma’s way. Welcome back boys, you all should be commended for a brilliant game that was not only great to watch but also a game that was well deserved. Try scorers went to – Will Shingles x 2 , Jake Hedger x 2 , Will Moore x 1, Bill Zammit x 1 Tim Gregory converted 1 try and James Cahill converted 3 tries.

Stallions satisfying 24-10 win over Eden

The Stallions travelled to Eden on Saturday to take on the home side in another do or die semi-final. It would be a tough test for the Stallions as Eden had a lot of home town support and support from other centres. This worked in our favour on Saturday as it has galvanised the team and they are determined to play for each other and continue towards the premiership taking one week at a time. On a positive side the Stallions had a tonne of Cooma support that travelled and were right behind them the whole game. The game did start well for them and they quickly went to a 12 nil lead as was the case against Merimbula. However Eden are a much more dangerous side and when they got back into the game with two tries the Stallions had to dig deep which they did and went into the sheds at half time 12 -10 up. The second half would prove that the Stallions have what it takes to keep alive in the coming weeks. A try early gave them some breathing space and with the conversion successful they went out to an 18-10 lead. An injury to Corey Thomas and with L i a m Saunders having an extended p e r i o d on the

sideline meant all the forwards had to really dig deep and dig deep is what they did. Corey and Liam have been amongst the Stallions best in the previous weeks so having them benched would really test the depth of the team. Eden threw everything at the boys in this period and not only did they defend like champions they broke Eden’s back with a converted try to give them an unassailable lead 24 -10 with only 10 minutes on the clock. The Stallions are all playing for each other and it’s evident from their results in the last four weeks of the competition. The best for Cooma on Saturday in a good team effort went to Joel Smith and Jeff Donald. This win to the Stallions and a loss by Bega mean the Stallions will take on Bega at Pambula this coming Sunday. A supporters bus is being organised and the guys would love to see the bus full to help them take the win over Bega and advance to this year’s grand final against Moruya. If you are interested in coming on the bus please contact Craig Smith on 0411 577 833 or Craig Schofield on 0414 865 922. The bus will leave from in front of the Ex-Services Club on Sunday at 10:30am. The cost will be $25 per head and includes entry to the game. The game will be played

at Pambula on Sunday starting at 2:30pm with the Fillies also in a quest for a record five straight grand finals. The Fillies play at 12noon against the minor premiers Narooma. Good luck to both sides and see you all at Pambula on Sunday. Pictured: 1st Grade Team, Adam Walters, Lee Welsh and Joel Smith.

Cooma Cats recorded a seven point loss to Yass at Snowy Oval last Saturday. Yass made good use of the wind in the first quarter to lead at the first change. However, the Cats started to put their game together in the second quarter and overhauled Yass, to lead by one point at halftime. With the strong wind a factor throughout the game, the team running with the breeze was able to capitalise. Unfortunately for the

Stallions U18s lose to Sharks 24-10 The Under 18 Cooma Stallions travelled to Eden last Saturday to take on the Moruya Sharks high with enthusiasm but short on numbers with players missing through injury and other reasons. The Sharks started with the greater intensity and put a try on the board in only the second minute to lead 4-0. It took another 10 minutes for the Stallions to click into gear, on the back of three penalties by the Sharks. On the fifth tackle, a pin point grubber kick by Josh Steinke was regathered by Tyler Jones who scored under the posts. Following Bailey Jones conversion the Stallions had gained the lead by 6-4. The Moruya Sharks attacked in the 20th minute and following three consecutive sets on the Stallions’ line the weight of possession finally told with a try. The score at half time had the Stallions trailing by 8-6. The half time break gave the Stallions time to recover and assess their position. With injuries limiting their options they were going to have to dig deep to compete with the Sharks in the second half. The Stallions came out and were on the attack early and were unlucky after an attacking kick was picked up by the Sharks who ran 60 metres, and scored a try shortly after to lead by 14-6. The Stallions were unfazed by this and continued to attack with all they had. Tyler Jones gave a pass to Bailey Jones who split the Sharks’ defence and found Josh Steinke in support. He drew the fullback and found Brandon Finister in support who was unfortunately bundled into touch with the try line in sight. From the scrum and the next set of six the Sharks spread the ball wide and outpaced the Stallions’ defence to lead by18-6. Only four minutes later the Stallions found themselves deep in the Sharks half and attacking. A grubber kick by Josh Steinke was re-gathered by the Sharks who turned defence into attack and ran in another try in the next set to lead by 24-6. The Stallions never say die attitude was on display over the final 15 minutes of the match. They had injuries limiting their options, players playing out of position and totally out

on their feet after the mountain of defence they had completed. Their flair in attack was on display with the end result of a try to Tyler Jones in the final minutes taking the final score to 24-10. Even though this was a loss on the scoreboard to the Stallions the boys can take away a victory in the way they kept pushing for a win in the face of adversity. The Players Player went to Gary Giles who played himself to an absolute standstill whether it being through taking the ball forward or by cutting down the Sharks’ attack with punishing tackles. The Best and Fairest points were awarded as follows: 3. Gary Giles 2. Josh Steinke 1. Lachlan Sellers and Austin Riley. Thank you to Jason Kelly for giving his time throughout the season to coach the boys and provide his insight and experience in trying to make the boys better players. Thank you also to Di Blyton for her assistance with the First Aid duties, the Stallions committee for their time and effort put into the C l u b a n d

other people who assisted the Under 18s team throughout the season. Good luck to both the Stallions First Grade and Fillies League Tag teams who will be vying for a

grand f i n a l berth next weekend. Pictured: Josh Steinke, Connor Rendolf, Bailey Jones, Tyler Jones and Daniel Swain.

Fillies win local derby 12-8 The Cooma Fillies have continued their finals’ success with a 12-8 victory over local rivals the Bombala High Heelers in Eden on Saturday. The win sees the Cooma girls progress to the Major Preliminary Final where they will take on the Narooma SheDevils for a place in the grand final in a fortnight. The Fillies began well, kicking off to the High Heelers and starting the game with a dominant defensive set. Georgie Clarke led from the front, while Anna Steel caught the powerful High Heelers’ half Maree Coates before she got her kick away, boosting the Fillies’ confidence as they settled into the game. With ball in hand, Abby Schofield and Alicia Bolton tested Bombala’s defence, expertly setting up speedsters Raen Brademanne and Tammy Povey who hit the line hard. The sides challenged each other to step up and both teams rose to the task, with the clubs showing class in their attack and refined defensive skills. Bombala’s line breaks from Tash Stewart and Kiarna Rodwell were wrapped up confidently by the Fillies’ Kate Schofield at fullback, however, the High Heelers got a roll on from a line break and Janine Jamieson managed to cross in the corner. With the kick waved away, the Fillies were still in the game. From the restart, the kick chase pressure was too much for the High Heelers, and the Fillies soon got the ball back in hand. Bombala’s defence read Cooma’s attacking plays well and the two teams tussled for much of the first half, but the Fillies kept the pressure on and forced uncharacteristic errors from the High Heelers’ key players. With 22 minutes gone, it was the fancy footwork of Alicia Bolton that bamboozled Bombala’s defenders and she notched up the Fillies first points, with Kate Schofield expertly slotting the conversion from out wide. With the Fillies now in the lead, they were determined to maintain their position and with just seconds remaining in the first half, there was a sense of déjà vu as Alicia Bolton repeated her efforts and crossed in almost the same place as her previous try. Kate Schofield’s accuracy with the boot extended the lead and the Fillies went into half time leading 12-4. In the second half, tension was high as the Fillies looked to hold onto the lead and the High Heelers fought to gain control. Anna Steel, Meg Bracher and Raen Brademanne continued to tag well, while the Schofield sisters

combined with Alicia Bolton to direct the attack. Katelyn Patricks and Yasmin Williams controlled the flanks for the Fillies, while Alana Nichols and Louise Barron were strong and safe in the middle of the field. A lapse in defence saw Tash Stewart score for Bombala and keep them in the game, but with the conversion missed, the Fillies still had a four point lead. The Cooma girls rallied with 12 minutes left in the game and stepped up in defence with level heads. As fatigue set in, a few unforced errors kept B o m b a l a ’s chances alive, but the High Heelers were also struck by weariness and couldn’t capitalise on their opportunities. The Heelers had one last attacking opportunity as the final siren sounded but it was nullified by a strong Fillies defensive line and the game came to a close with the Cooma girls on top. The standard of footy from the Fillies young side was a testament to the efforts of Coach Craig Schofield over the course of the year with the team’s experienced players leading the charge and their youthful teammates stepping up in what was another tough game against a talented side.

One fairest week was to Raen whose defence and gained great ground for and

points went to try scoring machine Alicia Bolton who was a stand out in attack, while three points were shared between sharp shooter Kate Schofield whose direction and all round contributions were immeasurable, and Anna Steel for her impressive defence and evasive attacking plays. Players’ Player was also shared between Alicia Bolton and Anna Steel. The Fillies will face off against Narooma in Pambula next Sunday, following the She-Devils’ first loss of the season to the Bega Chicks. The Cooma team will look to repeat this week’s performance and secure their place in the 2015 grand final.

Red Devils draw 12-all with Hall The Cooma Red Devils travelled to Hall on Saturday afternoon to play the last round of the regular season. With both games not having an affect on where either side finishes on the table, the games where more about building momentum going into the finals next week. Second grade took to the field with nothing to lose as with only the one win this year they could not make it into the finals. From the kick off the thrown together Cooma side took a while to settle into the game, while Hall played attacking football from the opening whistle and with the weight of possession got away to a flying start scoring four tries in the first 15 minutes to open up a handy 22 point lead that was going to be hard to haul back in for the young Cooma side. Mid way through the first half Cooma started to gain some momentum on the back of a strong kicking game from Matt Cusbert who was able to clear out of Cooma’s own end and relieve the pressure. Cooma was then able to play some attacking football with strong runs from Aaron Stewart, Bob Smith and Dom Giagios. Cooma was starting to find room around the edges of the ruck and a strong run from Andrew Stewart got Cooma within striking distance of the Hall try line and from close range Adam Schubert was able to crash through the defence and score. Aaron Stewart was unable to convert but it gave Cooma the lift in confidence they needed going into half time. The second half saw Cooma with a strong wind at their backs and with John Citizen adding some spark in the back line the second half belonged to Cooma with great defence from Dave Schubert, Aidan Herbert and Seth Robinson stopping any

momentum that Hall were getting and from this Cooma were able to attack and soon post more points on the board when John Citizen was able to put Jake Mcilvenny away down the sideline and with some flash foot work Jake stood up the full back and scored. Hall hit back with a couple of tries but Cooma responded late in the game when John Citizen took the line on and with a show and go went straight through the line then with another dummy beat the full back and scored. He then converted his own try but it wasn’t enough with Hall running out winners 41-17. Points in second grade 1 point Aaron Stewart, 2 points Ismail Hudson, 3 points Mathew Cusbert and Players player Dave Schubert. First grade First grade took to the field on Saturday in the last competition round knowing that a victory or a loss wouldn’t affect either side going into next week’s finals with Hall to finish in second spot and Cooma in third. From the opening whistle it was evident that the two sides were very evenly matched. The biggest factor was the strong wind that blew all afternoon and Hall were running with the wind in the first half. This made it extremely hard for Cooma to get away any relieving kicks of great distance but it was Cooma’s defence in the first half that was the most impressive with Cooma only having one notable attacking opportunity where a rolling maul from five metres out was stopped and pinched by the Hall defence. Hall then camped in the Cooma half but Cooma stuck together

and with great tackles from Tom Ladhams, Leighton Bates, Adam Schubert and Chris De Rooy stopping many attacking raids. This was the trend for most of the first half with Hall consistently attacking Cooma’s line but Cooma kept turning up for each other and for 35 minutes the defence held strong but Hall was able to crack Cooma twice late in the first half and score two tries to take a 12 nil lead into half time. Cooma came out in the second half and with the wind at their back and a scrum that was becoming more dominant as the day went on with the forwards showing the way with strong runs from Phil Johnson, Jimmy Nichols and James Strange making good metres around the edges of the ruck. Then from a rolling maul Matt Jamieson was able to peel away and crash over and score, Ryan Morgan was unable to convert but Cooma was coming back. With a majority of the ball Cooma were looking dangerous and from a five metre scrum, Cooma went for a push over try from 5 metres out Pat Egan picked the ball up from the back of the scrum and dived over. Ryan Morgan converted and the scores were locked at 12 all. The scores remained even till full time. Cooma had a couple of late chances but couldn’t find the winning points. The full time score ending up at 12 all. Points in first grade 1 point Adam Schubert, 2 points Tom Ladhams, 3 points Jimmy Nichols and Players Player Phil Johnson. Next week Cooma will play either Yass or RMC in the knock out final with the game to be played in Goulburn.

Red Devils U13s V UniNorths Red Devils U14s thrash Royals On a windy Saturday morning in Canberra the Cooma Red Devils took to the field determined to erase last week’s result from their heads. Cooma started the match with a lot more aggression in defence, which resulted in a good try down the touchline to Zac van der Platt. The tackling by all the team especially Braith Fitzgerald had the small Cooma crowd cheering. Uni Norths started to get some more possession through strong scrummaging and quickly scored two tries and scored late in the half with a steal close to the Cooma line.

Cooma CRT under 14s took on the might of Royals Rugby on Saturday in Canberra. In a game that Saw first V second place on the competition ladder respectively, the game was eager with anticipation. Cooma were able to apply early pressure on the Royals defence which saw Nick Cootes bulldozer his way over the try line for Cooma’s first try. Royals however hit back soon after with a try of their own, after the Royals centre showed a good pair of heels as he raced over the line. Cooma were a bit keen getting off the line in defence, giving away a few penalties for offside and also a couple of ruck infringements,

Halftime Uni’s 19 Cooma 5. The second half saw Unis snatch a early try and it looked as though the boys were in for a long day, but to there credit some strong runs from Aramis Fitzgerald and Will Lehrmann kept the contest even. This was a much improved effort by the Red Devils and the defence by the younger members of the team was a credit to them. Final score Unis 38 Cooma 5. Points were Aramis Fitzgerald 3, Braith Fitzgerald 2, Luke Fitzgerald 1.

Keegan Caldwell was having his usual game popping up everywhere on loose ball and continually finding his way to the try line with ease scoring a double also. Cooma were playing some free flowing rugby in the second half Darius Cook saw an opportunity and pick up the ball in the middle

Monaro High School Sports News Pennants team outgunned in playoffs

Pierre de Coubertin Award Congratulations to Tim Wall (Yr 12) who was presented with the Pierre de Coubertin Award at a special ceremony at Olympic Park on Friday June 19th. Tim received the award in recognition of his outstanding sporting achievements and contributions. Tim is an excellent ambassador for Monaro High School sport as he always conducts himself in the spirit of fair play and encourages others. Well done Tim!

Our Pennant Team in the Zone playoffs at Dubbo was unable to advance further than the Division stage and came away with one win against South Grafton Ex-Services, winning two rinks and drawing on the third for a 14 shot margin. Against Wagga Rules lost two rinks and drew one with a loss margin of 10 shots, against Dapto Citizens lost two rinks and won one for a losing margin of just one shot. As the final to decide the winner of the Grade 5 Pennant was not played till Monday afternoon the result was not known in time to be included in this report. Congratulations to the team for winning the right to Represent our Club and Zone 7 in this Competition. The warm weather last Wednesday brought out 28 players, the best roll up for some time. Mary Boller, Russell Fox and Ron Wainwright were in top form against Max Povey, Ron Gammon and Mick Mayhew when they established a 17/4 lead at the half way point. Max, Ron and Mick fared a little better in the run home but went down 11/25. Neil McGregor and Geoff Venables got in a little lead practice when they paired with Hazel Walker and Renate Winckel respectively. There wasn’t much in it for the first 13 ends, with Neil and Hazel leading 10/8. In winning seven of the remaining ends played, Neil and Hazel won the money 22/14. Judy Locker, Peter Harris and Mark Buckley lost seven of the first 11 ends played and trailed Maureen D’Amico Mike Mannile and Paul Cannell 8/17. Judy, Peter and Mark put it all together in the run home in outscoring Maureen, Mike and Paul but lost by just one shot, 20/21.

shots on 11, against Allan Crowe, Mario Frezza and Olga Jebbink to give them a handy lead and withstood a late challenge to win 17/15. Keith Goodwin, Mary Phillips and Giulio D’Amico started well against Bob Douglass, Ev Hamilton and Graham Vale but went walkabout for four ends to allow Bob, Ev and Graham to lead 12/7, followed by a stop start period with Keith, Mary and Giulio leading 16/12 on 13 but eventually losing 19/20. Three matches in Minor Singles were played last Saturday on a green running very well but in blustery, less than warm wind. With four shots on end eight, Colin Roberson drew level 8/8 with Mike Mannile but gradually fell behind for Mike to lead 28/18 on 24. Colin won nine of the next 10 ends to gain victory 31/28. Don Jarvis was in fine touch against Allan Crowe to lead 24/2 and dominated play for the remainder of the match to win 31/8. Keith Goodwin and Peter Harris had a real tight game through to end 22 with Keith leading 16/15. Three shots on 23 and four on 29 put Peter in the box seat and go on to win 31/22. Next Wednesday, Peter Harris will play Don Jarvis with Keith Goodwin as Marker and on Saturday, Colin Roberson will play Mick Mayhew with Mike Mannile as Marker.

The Cotton Tails Cup is on this Sunday and at the moment we need many more teams to match Federal’s teams. Also coming up this Saturday is the mixed foursomes and the Firemans Shield Golf Day on Saturday the 15th - so a huge couple of weeks of golf awaits… more at the end of this report.
